December was a tune-up for the season. It was great to see the movement around the resort again and to see some returning friends and meet some new ones. The captains have been itching to get on the water for months.

Costa Rica is open for tourism and has thus far had one of the lowest COVID-19 mortality rates in Latin America. The government has been managing the virus successfully. The Ministry of Health and the Costa Rican Tourism Institute in Costa Rica have defined preventative sanitary measures. In response to these measures, we would like to inform our guests on the Costa Rica entry requirements as well as Crocodile Bay Resort’s health and safety protocols.
Costa Rica opened its borders on August 1 to foreign tourists from the European Union, Schengen Area, the United Kingdom, and Canada, Tourism Minister Gustavo Segura announced in July. Starting November 1, all residents and citizens of the United States will be allowed to enter Costa Rica again.Tourists Entering Costa Rica will be required to complete the three following steps. Please contact us directly so that we may help walk you through the process and answer any questions that you might have.
What’s in a vacation? More than ever, a holiday today is priceless. The dictionary equates it to an escape, a getaway, a breather, or a rest. And we here at Crocodile Bay Resort in Costa Rica on the Osa Peninsula, have always understood this valuable investment in your life. Over the last 20 years, Crocodile Bay has evolved from a world-class fishing resort to a premier activity-based destination. As we say, you may wish to come for the fishing, but you’ll stay for the opportunity to share in all the colors of the Osa Peninsula.
Costa Rica opening its borders to foreign tourists from the European Union, the United Kingdom and Canada starting August 1, Tourism Minister Gustavo Segura announced Thursday. Visitors arriving from the Schengen Area, which comprises some countries not in the EU, are also welcome, the Costa Rica Tourism Board (ICT) clarified later Thursday. The country expects to receive fewer than five commercial flights per week at the outset, Segura said, representing less than 1% of Costa Rica’s pre-coronavirus flight volume.
The month started off with a bang, especially inshore when some boats were catching as many as 20 roosterfish a day, above the average of a good day of fishing. Mark Davis was here the first week of the month to film yet another episode of Bigwater Adventures and came out of the gate with a nice blue marlin to start the show.
I was born in San Jose and lived there for the first seven years of my life. When I was around six years old, my mother started working at the Costa Rican consult part-time in the United States, and we would spend six months in the US, and six months here in Costa Rica. Around a year later, she was offered a full-time position at the Costa Rican consult in Milwaukee Wisconsin, and my entire family (my older brother, my stepdad and I) moved to the United States.
Crocodile Bay Resort is situated comfortably on the blue waters of the Golfo Dulce. We are known as an activity-based destination with the largest private fleet of boats in all of Central America, a fleet that includes Boston Whaler 24’ center consoles and Strike Yachts 33’ and 35′ tower boats that are easily accessible from our 800-foot private pier. This means that you will have the opportunity to explore places on the water where no one else can take you. Just take a short walk down to our pier and off you go on an ocean safari of your choosing.
January starts and ends with a Bang! New Year’s Eve is the only day of the year you will find a traffic jam in Puerto Jimenez. Yet, thanks to a generous neighbor, this small beach town has one of the largest, most spectacular NYE fireworks display in all of Costa Rica. Local people come from all over the peninsula to enjoy the lit-up sky.
A circle hook is a fishing hook manufactured so that the point is turned perpendicularly back to the hook shank to form a generally circular, or oval, shape. It has become widely used among anglers in recent years because the hook typically catches more fish and is rarely swallowed. Since the circle hook catches the fish on the lips at the corner of its mouth, it usually decreases the mortality rates of released fish.
Crocodile Bay Resort is located next to the small village of Puerto Jimenez on the Osa Peninsula in Costa Rica. The peninsula is one of the least developed regions in the country and is by far the most untouched. The most biologically intense place on earth is not a place to be afraid of; on the contrary, this is a place to be explored, experienced and enjoyed.
